FRIDAY, DECEMBER 30, 1988

The main thrust of Israel's
foreign policy in the new
government will be to thwart
the "peace offensive" current-
ly being pursued by PLO
leader Yassir Arafat. In its
place, Israeli leaders have pro-
mised to unveil their own in-
itiative.
This is likely to be based on
a program of encouraging the
emergence of "authentic"
Palestinian leaders in the oc-
cupied territories through
municipal elections and the
institution of a form of
limited autonomy.
The autonomy machinery
will aim at giving the Palesti-
nians a large measure of con-

Moshe Arens

trol over their day-to-day af-
fairs, but it will stop short of
granting them total self-
government, which would be
control over the land.
Whether such an initiative
is realistic in the wake of the
recent diplomatic gains
achieved by the PLO — or, in-
deed, if it was ever realistic —
the man who will bear
responsibility for presenting
Israel's face to the world is
63-year-old Moshe "Misha"
Arens.
He lost no time in moving
on to the offensive. Last Fri-
day, just one day after taking
office, he declared that Arab
terrorists appeared to be
behind last week's crash over
Scotland of a PanAm jumbo
jet, which took the lives of 258
passengers and crew.
He also accused the United
States of encouraging ter-
rorism by opening a dialogue
with the PLO.
Arens, a former am-
bassador to Washington
(1982-1983), is courteous and
gentlemanly in a country
where politicians are
characterized by
rambunctiousness.
Beneath the gentle exterior,
however, Arens takes a hard-

line attitude toward the
Palestinians in particular and
the Middle East conflict in
general. He is also a hawk on
military matters.
He voted against the 1978
Camp David accords because
he believed that Israel was
paying too high a price for
peace with Egypt, and he
resigned from the last govern-
ment over the decision to
cancel the ambitious, expen-
sive Lavi jet-fighter project.
Born in Lithuania on Dec.
7, 1925, he emigrated to the
United States with his fami-
ly when he was 14 and lived
there for the next nine years.
He became active in the
Betar youth movement, in-
spired by the philosophy of
Ze'ev Jabotinsky, the father of
the Revisionist Zionist move-
ment.
In 1948, he emigrated to
Palestine to join the Revi-
sionist Irgun Zvai Leumi
underground movement,
which was led by Menachem
Begin, who became Prime
Minister of Israel in 1977.
After the establishment of
Israel, he returned to the
United States and enrolled at
the Massachusetts Institute
of Technology, where he
graduated with a degree in
aeronautical engineering.
On returning to Israel, he
was closely involved in the
development of the Kfir jet.
In 1983, he was recalled
from his posting to
Washington, where he
presented Israel's case during
the Lebanese War, and was
appointed defense minister.
He succeeded Ariel Sharon,
who resigned in disgrace
following recommendations of
the Kahan Commission into
the Sabra and Shatilla
massacre of Palestinian
refugees in Beirut by Chris-
tian Phalangists.
More recently, he was used
by Prime Minister Shamir as
a secret envoy to Secretary of
State George Shultz at the
outset of the Palestinian
uprising late last year.
He is seen as the man most
likely to mend Israel's fences
with Washington and his im-
mediate aim will be to try to
convince the United States
administration that it erred
in opening a dialogue with
the PLO.
While Arens is Shamir's
chosen successor, his quiet
manner, sophistication and
intellectual approach to
Israel's problems make him
appear aloof and he enjoys no
grass-roots support in the
populist Likud Party.
